for "piers morgan tonight." >>> piers morgan's interview with tyler perry begins in just a minute. i'm candy crowley in washington with the latest on the fiscal cliff negotiations. there was a big meeting at the white house today between the president and the four leaders, two republicans and two democrats on capitol hill. senator harry reid told reporters afterwards that the next 24 hours would be very important, as he and republican leader mitch mcconnell try to put together something that would pass both of their caucuses, that republicans in the senate would vote for and that democrats in the senate would vote for. and then, of course, it would have to go to the house. now, the majority leader senator reid said he's readying a bill for a vote on monday to prevent a tax hike on incomes up to $250,000. senator reid said his bill will include all of the additional provisions that the president outlined that include long-term unemployment benefits, a continuation of those. that would be sort of the plan b for democrats simply because what they would rather do is get a bill with senator reid

for that other hotel about us. about a year ago i met the actor and director tyler perry. tyler a couple years ago bought delta airlines headquarters in atlanta and needed to some its tv shows and movies. one of the amazing things about tyler and his story is a 1998 tyler was homeless and tyler perry searcy changed his story. i have kind of an unusual story myself. i was born in a small river town on the hudson, newburgh new york. when i was growing up, look magazine called it the all-american city and at that time we had kind of an inner-city, but then we had a lot of harm kids and there was an air force base of the schools will follow the inner-city and harm can and kids who'd been around the world. it was an interesting place to grow up. earlier on my father grew up in the newburgh poorhouse. it was called the poggi. my father's mother was a charwoman at the poorhouse come which meant she cleaned the bathrooms or the other poor people and they got a room there. so that was our background and that's why feel i should be the next president of the united states.

family, i can appreciate some of those scenes. the fact of the matter is tyler perry was an influence here for you. how did that -- how did he fit into your making this and what was the incentives and the notion behind it? >> we were making that film "alex cross." hanging out on set. it was a game changing conversation. he just rewatched brothers mcmullen and said, all right. mcmullen was successful. she followed it. very successful. both about these irish american working class families. why is it that in 15 years you never return to that milieu. i guarantee you the audience that loved those two movies are going to thank you for this. the minute he said it, i knew he was right. i sat down, opened up my laptop. i typed interior. didn't know where i was going. six weeks later i had the first draft. it was incredible. >> you want to stick with that niche. the flying barnicle brothers. >> i like it. >> based on a true story. >> because of that i started to work on a sequel to "brothers mcmull en." >> we'll see that. another great product, "the fitzgerald family christmas" is available no
